    Currently i am using this Delayed Lock app and it works really great. The app can erase my phone locally (not remote) after several failed attempts at password unlock. But the downside is that it cannot wipe the SD Card content. Is there any app out there that can do the same but wipe all of them includes Internal Storage and SD Card content locally though. I mean i rarely activate my mobile data and use wi-fi i bought android to read books and take notes.

    Thank you so much for you help in advance

    Edit: My device is Sony Xperia Z2

    Hello Hello Hello I am New. I moved from Apple because i thought Android has this thing built-in. I guess i was wrong. Why does everything must be controlled remotely???? why??? why not locally like Apple?

    Because it's safer. If a kid got hold of your phone, say a nephew, and inputs several wrong codes... Well you see my drift.

    You can send erase command via SMS, no need for internet. Although of course that depends on the app you have. Encrypting the phone would also help.

    I found AndroidLost app but they say you must login using your Google Account or something, i am not sure if it is safe. But they did have this sms commands feature that lets me erase the entire sd and internal storage without internet connection... interesting
